Posted on 14 May 2012 by KWBG

BOONE, Iowa—Authorities in Boone and Boone County had expected increases in calls over the weekend.  Most were associated with Lazerfest at the Central Iowa Expo site east of Boone.  The number of calls certainly spiked on Sunday during the concert, with numerous reports of disorder conduct, assaults, and various drug and alcohol violations.  Additional medical calls were also reported, many actually handled right at the concert site.  One bit of good news, for the first time in a couple of years, Lazerfest had sunshine and mild temperatures.
